At 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, a line starting at Freeborn Hall snaked all the way around the UC Davis Bookstore. NEEDTOBREATHE fans are a dedicated bunch.
Singer-songwriter Matthew Mayfield opened the concert playing a mix of his songs and hard-rock covers like “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns N’ Roses. Good Old War pumped up the crowd, playing songs from their newest album, Come Back As Rain, as well as songs from their previous albums.
Coming with 12 years of experience and energy, headliner NEEDTOBREATHE brought the energy of a stadium concert and crammed it into Freeborn Hall. With South Carolina soul and charisma, the band drove the crowd wild. NEEDTOBREATHE played songs from their latest album, The Reckoning.
